Hi lads

I have an exchange server with a database of 50GB
I have 3 drives C:\ with 35GB free space and  E:\ with 40GB of free space and F:\ with 600GB free space  

C:\ is the system drive
E:\ is the drive with the exchange database
F:\ is an ISCSI drive from a NAS Server

I am trying to do an offline defrag of  exchange  
I am running the following command
E:\"program files"\exchsrvr\bin\eseutil.exe /d E:\progra~1\exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb

this command runs ok but there is not enough space on C:\ to hold the temp database

is there a way to run this command that will write the Temp database to F:\ and allow the defrag to finish ok

thanks for any help
